    Too many new member join posts

    Joe can you do something about it? Maybe hiding them? Or not showing them as unread posts?

    I hate captcha's. I $#@!ing hate them.

    My spam filter usually gets all of these. I'll get on this in the morning, still nursing a hell of a hangover after a wedding.

    Nah, if so you think they would be smart enough to make it so the accounts used real e-mail addresses so the accounts would not be worthless.

    Can you adapt the New User Welcome message so that it will only show after the mailadress is verificated by the new member?

    I've cut it down considerably. If it bothers you just mark that forum read. I can add something to exclude that forum from searches as well.
